Solidcore-based DNF SafeGuard™ offers total control, compliance, and security of data on NAS, iSCSI, and SAN Appliances
Orlando, Florida — October 24, 2005 — Dynamic Network Factory, Inc. (DNF), a leading maker of high-performance NAS, SAN, RAID, and iSCSI systems, and Solidcore Systems, Inc., the leading provider of IT control solutions, have announced at Storage Networking World that DNF is the first manufacturer to offer networked storage integrating Solidcore's S3 Embedded software for complete control, compliance, and security of data on networked servers and workstations.
“Solidcore technology gives us a tremendous advantage over other storage OEMs, particularly those running Windows-based platforms,” said Mo Tahmasebi, president and CEO of Dynamic Network Factory, Inc. "As we all know, managing risks in Windows environments is complex and costly, but by providing Solidcore’s S3 Embedded technology on our Windows-based systems, our customers are guaranteed a cost-effective way to maximize availability, reliability, and security via a simple and unified platform. I also recommend that all of my customers use Solidcore’s enterprise solutions across the board in their IT infrastructure."
Today, critical enterprise data resides on networked storage systems in heterogeneous workstation and server environments. Any storage appliance running a distributed operating system such as Microsoft Windows, Linux, or Java is susceptible to executing introduced code whether authorized or not. Without control of the run-time environment, system data can be lost, modified, or stolen.
"With more and more of our business-critical data stored on Windows-based servers, we have had to add proactive IT operations control to our arsenal of reactive measures such as antivirus software and vulnerability patches," said Stephen Courtwright, System Administrator of First Citizen's Bank, a DNF customer. "DNF is the only vendor that provides the storage availability and data protection we need while seamlessly integrating with our other data protection products,"
S3 Embedded enables manufacturers to incorporate Solidcore's unique Solidification™ technology into any computing device, including storage servers, among many others. Solidcore ensures that original device configurations can be maintained in deployment by preventing any unauthorized code from executing on any solidified device. With S3 Embedded, DNF is eliminating entire categories of data loss risk and security threats while offering unparalleled levels of quality, stability, and security to customers.
"With S3 Embedded, Solidcore has made it possible for OEMs to establish total control over crucial networked servers and workstations," said Robert Sandie, EVP of Corporate Development at Solidcore. "As manufacturers of embedded systems embraced standardized computing environments, DNF recognized that with the benefits of open platform development come serious deployment risks. Using S3 Embedded, DNF is taking advantage of the cost efficiencies of open platform development while delivering highly differentiated, closed devices with a resultant reduction in support costs."
